Richmond Holidays

Richmond Holidays: The home of quality Christian holidays

When God speaks to Moses in Exodus 33:14, He reminds us, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest”. What a joy it is that our Heavenly Father loves to be with us in relationship and in rest!

This message is at the heart of each Richmond holiday; we offer you space to relax, explore your faith and invest in friendships. In these incredible locations and at our UK office, our Christian staff teams always start the day with prayer and Bible study, putting God first and seeking His wisdom and blessing for the adventures that lie ahead.

If you’re ready for adventure or seeking rest, we hope to see you in one of our resorts soon!

I love the fellowship, great hospitality, accommodation, beautiful setting, fabulous food, very gracious, helpful and multi-talented staff team! The walking programme was well planned and informative.

Lois, July 19, French Alps

It was an excellent holiday, Emma (the walk leader) was particularly good and the Christian ethos and friendliness amongst the staff and other guests made the holiday very special.

Julie, July 19, French Alps

It was like being with family - I travelled alone with some trepidation but everyone was so friendly and inclusive. It's a wonderful area for walking and being able to share experiences and encourage each other en route. The ministry times were uplifting and it was great to be able to praise God together in such amazing scenery.

Rita, July 19, French Alps

The staff were very friendly and accommodating, you could join in when you wanted or be on your own if you wanted. The food was tremendous and the other guests friendly and encouraging. Also, the Bible teaching was excellent.

Christopher, August 19, French Alps

At no point did I feel alone, but I could also have space to myself too. White water rafting was amazing and the mountain walks were terrific too.

Sarah, August 19, French Alps

The team were fantastic and couldn’t do enough to help make our stay wonderful, whether it was taking us out on hikes or cycle rides or organising rafting, helping with any problems or just serving us - wonderful!

Rachel, August 19, French Alps

The Richmond staff were lovely and the location was superb. I met wonderful fellow holiday makers. We formed strong bonds and supported each other. It was lovely to know that you could go for a meal, sit on the beach, go on an outing or whatever and have someone to do things with.

Janet, September 19, Samos

I loved being on the waterfront and having Christian fellowship. Such a different atmosphere to staying in ordinary hotels

Carol, October 19, Samos

The holiday was enjoyable in every way. I've come home feeling more refreshed than I have in a long time! The commitment, availability and friendliness of the Richmond team was outstanding.

Jill, July 18, Samos

I can’t fault the holiday. The staff were amazing and so friendly! I have left with the best memories and wonderful new friends. The food was amazing and the activities were so good. All the staff went out of their way to make sure you were well looked after.

Katie-May, July 18, French Alps

I really appreciated the care and attention of all the staff, nothing was too much trouble and they were happy to help.

Shan, July 18, French Alps

Diane and her team were all approachable, friendly, encouraging and servant-hearted, they couldn't do enough to help make the holiday a wonderful experience.

Lorna, July 18, French Alps

Loved the walks and white water rafting - comes highly recommended!

Fiona, August 18, French Alps

The chalet is an excellent place to relax - clean and comfortable; fantastic view from the lounge, balcony and 'garden'. But also in an excellent location to access various activities

Stephen, August 18, French Alps

Loved meeting new people on the holiday and doing more than I expected in the way of a challenge... With some useful encouragement from Ella! I also enjoyed meeting in the mornings to read a psalm and Hebrews.

Penny, August 18, French Alps

The staff were fabulous, very kind, caring and attentive and also fun

Sheridan, August 18, French Alps

Far better than any other Christian holiday we have been on!

David, August 18, French Alps

The atmosphere of the chalet was excellent - like coming back to a lovely home. The rooms were well equipped and after a long walk the hot tubs were fantastic. The meals were so well presented and prepared with service to equal any hotel! The location of the chalet was great and the views were amazing!

David, August 18, French Alps

The attitude and servant-heartedness of every member of staff was what made our holiday so special. Every person on the team was a delight to be with, we felt truly blessed and inspired by each of them.

Susan, August 18, French Alps

The scenery was stunning, Fellowship was wonderful and the chalet felt very homely. Food was great and plentiful. We had a wonderful time helped by a very dedicated and delightful Richmond team.

Robert, August 18, French Alps

This is the most amazing holiday we have had. We can’t thank you enough. The team were fantastic and bent over backwards to make us feel welcome. The Christian atmosphere and teaching was fantastic. We will definitely be booking with Richmond again!

Philip, January 19, Chalet Elise

The staff at Chalet Elise were a real team - they were efficient, united, friendly, supportive of each other as well as the guests, and genuinely caring, with a big dose of fun and joie de vivre. Our feeling was that this was a "golden" team, and a beautiful demonstration of what a little piece of the kingdom could be like.

Susannah, December 18, Chalet Elise

The whole team were brilliant and they were very competently led by Lydia. They all had great characters, and I think I have to say they were one of the best teams I have experienced. There was just something special about them as a team that I can't quantify in words.

Frances, December 18, Chalet Elise
